Everyday Clothes Patterns for Pajamas
It wasn’t long after I started sewing for my daughter, Elise, that she realized that I could make her really fun pajamas for school Pajama Day. That encouraged me to find clothing patterns that she wears that work well as pajamas, too.I began thinking of this topic, when I just made her these Made for Mermaids Women’s Lexi Loungers Shorts and Paige Piko Top as pajamas to match a panel that she picked out for her dad. I cut two backs and lowered the neckline for the front just a bit to get the entire panel to fit.
This spring, I used some of Elise’s favorite Made for Mermaids dress patterns to make her some nightgowns.
These two are Paige Piko Dresses:
The french fries are her absolute favorite Kourtney Knot Dress and the Mermaid Scales is a Mya Dress:
I used the Made for Mermaids Lexi and Lou Loungers pattern with their Ava Tunic to make this pajama set for Pajama Day at school.
This is a winter favorite – the Portlander Pants by New Horizons Designs. They have a great blog post on adjusting the fit that makes these pants a winner for both me and Elise. She is also wearing their Streamline Tee. It was extra fun to use my Silhouette Cameo to add the vinyl decal.
Here was an outfit made from some scraps in my stash for Halloween Pajama Day. The Tulipa Dolman by Sew Like My Mom was great for scraps and I made that with the Halla Lounge Pants.
Finally, here is a case of what is not desired with your fabric choice. Elise had loved this print in cotton Lycra, so I bought her some more the following year, but in her favorite double brushed poly. It is the beautiful Penelope Princess Seam Dress pattern by Made By Mermaids. But she ended feeling like she was wearing pajamas, so it didn’t get much wear.
